Original French version of the book ''Peindre la Bible''.
With numerous reproductions of master paintings and their most striking details, accompanied by a clear, educational text, this book explains how art has taken hold of the religious motif, and how the understanding of Scripture "grows with its reader".
Artists are far from being mere illustrators. When they seize upon the Bible, it's never to give it a simple pictorial equivalent, but to defend an aesthetic, to show their superiority by representing what may seem elusive - such as the upheaval of a soul in conversion, the fleeting moment of an apparition, or the effect of the discourse of faith on the mind - to denounce in a roundabout way the horrors of the world in which they live, or to become moralists and correct human vices through Scripture.
Book written by Régis Burnet.
